There is a tool called an easy-out that you may be able to find at Sears, or if you know any local hardware stores go there and ask. Its basically a tapered drill bit that grips and helps you back things out. Since it is a bit and you are working with metal and an opening to the engine just be careful not to drop any metal or porcelain into the spark plug hole

Broken spark plug over coil bottom still on spark plug

You need to state the model, engine size and clarify what you mean about the "plug over coil". I can try to help but not sure what you want to know. Yes, I understand you have a broken plug in the cylinder head but you should be able to use a socket and remove the plug just be sure nothing falls in the cyl. head when you remove the plug.

How To Find An Electrical Engine Miss

One way to find an engine miss, start the vehicle, and with a pair of leather gloves, (so you don't get a jolt and you might want to remove each wire boot and reinstall with the motor not running, this will help ease removal of the spark plug wires when the motor's running, also spraying some WD-40 and twisting the spark plug wire boots will help in removal of the spark plug wire). You'll want remove 1 spark plug at a time, if the engine bogs down or idle drops, put the wire back on, go to the next spark plug wire, until you get to the spark plug wire that has no effect on the running of the motor when you remove the spark plug wire from the plug, that is the cylinder that has a problem. The problem causing this could be the spark plug (wrong spark plug gap), a bad spark plug wire, the terminal on the distributor cap, or even an internal engine problems i.e, intake or exhaust valves, bent pushrods, broken or weak valve springs, or bad compression rings on the piston. This will help you narrow it down to what cylinder it is. If removing all of them doesn't make much difference, there could be a vacuum leak, caused by a broken or disconnected vacuum hose or fuel delivery problems, plugged fuel filter, low fuel pressure, or a bad fuel pressure regulator.

My mazda v6 mx6 2.5, automatic misfiring. what could be the problem

what year and how many miles? check engine light on? problem could be as easy as a spark plug wire loose or broken. so first check for broken or loose spark plug wires check them close with your hand. u can also check at night time with the engine running, watching for an out of place spark. next i would check the spark plugs, remove and inspect for proper clearances. still no luck u can do a compression test on each cylinder. fuel delivery could also be a problem but a little more complicated to check. u could always put some fuel injector clean in ur fuel tank. ps if u take ur spark plugs out look at the spark plugs tips. compare the spark plugs with a spark plug condition chart. also always use anti seize compound on the threads of your spark plug before installation.

Broken spark plug coil bolt

If it is broken off below the surface you will have to try to drill it and use an easy out tool. And it may be frozen in the threads which is why it broke with you.

I have 1997 subaru outback wagon that I bought used. It appears that the spark plugs and wires are still the oem wires and have never been changed. How do I get a broken plug cover off to remove the plug?

As you are going to replace the plug and wire anywhere, get a pair of needle-nose pliers and grab what's left of the broken plug wire and pull hard. Even if it snaps the spark plug off, you will still be able to use the spark plug socket to remove the plug.
